Together, we are building a powerful grassroots movement to reimagine Maine
from the ground up.
A New Model to Win the Change We Need
With nearly 150 other organizations across New England, we have formed the Renew New England Alliance, a coalition to address our states’ interconnected crises: mass unemployment, racial injustice, the coronavirus pandemic, and climate change.
FOR A JUST
All Mainers – no matter our backgrounds – want dignified work, a safe place to call home, and clean air to breathe and water to drink. But today, in the midst of a pandemic, hundreds of thousands of Mainers are struggling to make rent and put food on the table, while a wealthy few are getting even richer.
We deserve better, and we need to join together now to fight for it.
We have the power to ensure that everyone in Maine – Black, brown, and white, Indigenous and immigrant – has a dignified job with a liveable wage, can afford a comfortable home and enough food, and can walk or play outside in clean air.
A better world isn’t just possible, it’s necessary. And it starts with us.
Renew Maine is a coalition of 20 grassroots organizations – including frontline communities, Indigenous tribes, environmental justice advocates, youth groups, and racial justice organizations.
Our Policy Framework
The Renew Maine policy agenda for the 2021 legislative session includes legislation to recognize tribal sovereignty, to create a consumer owned utility, and to put thousands of Mainers to work building affordable, energy-efficient homes, and installing rooftop solar panels for low-income households – guaranteeing dignity, good jobs, affordable housing, and clean energy for all.
